Have you ever dealt with an existential crisis before? You know those moments that everyone experiences at one point in their lives, or multiple times if you’re me and my friends. “Who do I want to be when I finally grow up?” “What do I want to do with my life?” “What degree am I going to major in?” “What do I feel like cooking for dinner?” I go through an existential crisis at least twice a year, and then I land on a goal and try to accomplish it, but I always have the craziest roadblocks that happen, and it’s back to Square 5,497.
Did you know that we mere mortals aren’t the only ones who have to suffer through an existential crisis? Have you ever thought about animals, computers, or even baked goods? In the case of the latter, it can lead into a sometimes dangerous and seedy world while one tries to discover one’s self. And the baked good in question is our depressed hero, Croissant Man. As you can see in the video above, this new webseries was chosen as a Staff Pick at Vimeo, which makes it even more worthy of viewing by everyone.
Created by the very talented Tulica Singh, Croissant Man is a unique and whimsical look at the life of a croissant who exists in a world of filled with bigoted pastries, finger strippers, and the occasional crime-solving. Croissant Man deals with a major existential crisis and even seeks therapy in the first episode of this awesome webseries, which features a total of nine episodes for the first season. Future seasons are planned and that makes me very happy. I binged-watched it one evening and recently watched it again, enjoying it as much as I did the first time.
Check out the first episode above, titled “Therapy.” Episode Two, “It Happened One Night,” will be posted this Friday, along with an short interview that I conducted via e-mail with Tulica (a very lovely woman). Please enjoy this first episode and share it with your friends. If you are having problems seeing the video above, follow this link to the official Vimeo channel: Croissant Man @ Vimeo.
